Monkey Cookies

monkey-cookiesHere’s a healthy treat you can feed your little monkeys after school.

Quick and simple to make and your little ones can help, mix and drop the dough onto a cookie sheet.


3 ripe bananas (I’d previously frozen my ripe bananas so they were super sweet.)

2 cups oats (I used quick)

¼ cup peanut butter

¼ cup cocoa powder

1 tsp vanilla

pinch salt

Cinnamon and nutmeg (for sprinkling on top)

Mix together and bake in preheated 350F oven for 10 to 15 minutes.

Tip:  I like to bake cookies on parchment paper—simple clean-up!

Tip: If these cookies are too healthy and chewy for your taste, try adding equal part chocolate chip cookie dough.
